Wednesday Off-Topic (Moderated) Open Thread (102611)

Filed under: Lucid Links — Tom @ 7:00 am

Rules are here. Possible comment fodder will follow later. Other topics are also fair game.


NewsBusters — “Jewish Leaders Join (Media Research Center’s Brent) Bozell’s Demand for Network Coverage of Anti-Semitism at ‘Occupy Wall Street’”

Chronicle of Higher Education (HT Instapundit) — “Rise in Sticker Price at Public Colleges Outpaces That at Private Colleges for 5th Year in a Row”

Joel B. Pollak at BigGovernment“Barack Obama Led #OccupyChicago – Circa 1988″

Kyle-Anne Shiver at PJ Media“Why Herman Cain Electrifies the Grassroots: Five Voters Speak Out”

Erick Ericksen at RedState on WaPo blogger Jennifer Rubin — “Not only is she not a conservative, she’s shilling for one candidate while being paid by the Washington Post.” Unsurprisingly, the candidate is Mitt Romney. More: “On Tuesday alone, Rubin wrote eight attacks on Rick Perry alone in a column styled as ‘commentary from a conservative perspective.’”

John Stossel at Townhall“School Competition Rescues Kids”

Walter E. Williams — “The Occupy Wall Street demonstrators are demanding ‘people before profits’ — as if profit motivation were the source of mankind’s troubles — when it’s often the absence of profit motivation that’s the true villain.”

Political Calculations (at Townhall; more complete post at his own place) — “The Real Story Behind ‘Rising’ U.S. Income Inequality.” The “real story is that income inequality has barely risen in the 16 years addressed.

CBS/NYT Poll: Cain 25, Romney 21, Gingrich 10, Paul 8, Perry 6, which moves Cain’s Real Clear Politics poll-roundup advantage to a single point. But again, as is all too frequently the case, the poll uses a muddled preference question: “Which one of these candidates would you like to see the Republican Party nominate for President in 2012 - Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, RonPaul, Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, or would you like to see someone else nominated?”

NewsBusters“OWS Supporter Michael Moore Lies on National Television About His Wealth: No I’m Not Worth Millions.” Yes he is.
